Great hike! Goes from easy to moderate along the whole way, the loop was much more worth it than seeing the attractions before hand!

Tree frogs are out and singing their songs. Did 4.3 mile loop on blue marked Quarry trail. Some mud in two or three spots, otherwise dry. Took about 90 minutes roundtrip from parking lot. Shepaug River is high and glowing briskly right now.

Pretty easy minus a few steep/rocky sections. Trail is marked, but still gets a little confusing. Overall an interesting place to take a short day trip

Awesome spot. Easy to follow trails with some steep spots to keep it fun and challenging. Lots of fallen leaves made the trail a bit tough in spots as you can really start to slide, but hiking poles really help with this. Cool historical spots with lots of informational placards explaining the mining operation and donkey trail. Bat cages were really cool too. We will definitely return.
